June 24th-26th


Redstone, Colorado






May-2015 Redstone 028

Three days of ecodyeing, stitching, collaging and being pampered with Roxanne Evans Stout and Leslie Marsh at the beautiful Redstone, Colorado, home of Laura Roberts, (also known as Hasty Pearl)!

With Leslie, students will learn to ecodye – coaxing beautiful prints onto paper and fabric for their books using leaves, heat and water. They will bind the fruit of their efforts into a wrapped felt book using gathered sticks and a very simple binding.

Roxanne will share her many collaging and stitching secrets with participants, filling the pages of their books with stunning nature-inspired pieces of art.

While we're busy creating, Laura will spoil our socks off in the all-out way she's becoming known for. An excellent cook and hostess extraordinaire, she will leave us all smiling and full of her yummy treats.

The workshop fee includes everything necessary to complete the 6.5" by 5" book similar as shown.

It also includes lunch and more delicious snacks than we could possibly eat.

June is the perfect time to be in Colorado.

We hope you can join us!
